TLC's Kindergarten is set up to complete the previous four foundational years in our school. This is when many of the earlier lessons come together and become a permanent part of the young child's understanding.
Based on the proven belief that children develop best when they have the freedom to learn and grow as individuals, the unique Montessori style of learning takes advantage of a child's natural ability to aquire knowledge and skills.
The focus on developing each child's exceptional and distinct set of gifts creates a non-competitive, cooperative classroom enviromnent. As a result, many of TLC's Kindergarten students attain such a high level of skills that they transfer directly to our district's accelerated programs and/or become leaders in their classes.
"Any child who is self-sufficient, who can tie his shoes, dress or undress himself, reflects in his joy and sense of achievement the image of human dignity, which is derived from a sense of independence."
